When Scottie D originally asked me if I’d be willing to write a review of the Eat Your Heart Out Tour that hit Reading, PA, I was a little apprehensive at first. Sure, I used to write short stories and I currently write lyrics for my music but a review of this caliber? I’ve never really written many reviews in the past, but this isn’t an opportunity I could pass up. When the sponsor of my internet radio station, Masters of the Underground asks me for a favor, I step up to the plate. It’s time to put up or shut up so to speak. So, with much love and respect to FaygoLuvers for giving me this opportunity, I’d like to openly admit that in my 16+ years of being a juggalo this was my first ever show. I know that statement will cause a lot of head scratching. “Illusionizt, how the hell could you be down for that long and never attend any shows whatsoever?” To be perfectly honest I don’t entirely know the answer.  Everything just seemed to be a little too far out of reach or the cards just weren’t aligned in my favor. This year however, everything changed.

I was at work on my normal 12-hour shift, when a coworker and friend of mine asked me if I was going to the show over the weekend. To be honest, at the time I didn’t even have a clue what he was talking about. When he told me that Twiztid, Blaze, The R.O.C., Lex the Hex Master and G-Mo Skee were all going to be at Reverb in Reading, PA, I knew I just had to make it. Reading is only about two and a half hours away and tickets were only $18. We got paid that Friday, and my co-worker Zach, offered to allow me to carpool with him and his girlfriend if I just helped pitch in for gas.  So I was in.  Being as it was last minute I was only able to get the general admission tickets but I was so excited to finally be going to a show that it didn’t bother me in the least.  On the day of the show, we left around 11:30 am, went out to eat at Longhorn (Them garlic fries are the shit let me tell you what) and had a minor exciting yet unnerving event of the car not wanting to start. Luckily we were already in Reading when that happened.  We changed a few fuses and got the car running again.  When we pulled into the parking lot, it was about 3 hours before the doors opened. We walked around for a good bit searching for a bathroom in the hood, with everyone speaking Spanish that none of us could understand. We eventually found one that the owners of a small corner store were kind enough to let us use. After that, we headed back over to the Reverb.  I met a few juggalos around back who had heard of Masters of the Underground through FaygoLuvers which was a cool moment for me.

A major moment before the show took place when I saw Lex the Hex Master chilling outside in the back-parking lot. When I finally got my head right, I took the chance and started walking up to him. When I told him that I was the Illusionizt from Masters of the Underground, I was immediately humbled by his response. “Hey yeah, yeah I know you from Twitter and shit!” We shook hands shot the shit for a little bit and he offered us some water. He let me know to find one of his security guys after his set and he’d be down to do whatever I wanted, pics, video etc. After that we spent about 2 and a half more hours outside in freezing cold weather until they finally let us in, and it was 100 percent worth it!! Everyone on the entire show card came at it with pure adrenaline, from the opening artists like my homie Lungz, DRangD and Trilogy to every artist from MNE…everyone in that joint was rocking. Lex was the first MNE artist to perform and he came out with a bang and set the tone for the rest of the show.  He played standouts such as “Ninjas,” “Bomb On ‘Em,” and my current favorite, “I Don’t Like Your Face.” After his set, Lex motioned to follow him to the merch booth where I was able to personally meet George who’d I’d been emailing back and forth with for several weeks prior. I was humbled again when George told me that everyone at MNE likes what Masters of the Underground is doing.  We chatted for a few until he had to bounce and waited for the autograph line to die down. Lex motioned for us to follow again but once he passed through the security gate in front of the stage while The R.O.C. was performing I wasn’t entirely sure if we were allowed follow.  So I walked around and wound up getting lost in the moment and the love of the crowd. The chants of FAMILY throughout the night were something to behold. Before The R.O.C. went off stage, he took a moment to tell the juggalos some things I knew were from the heart. It was a moment I won’t forget and completely respect. I’m not going to go into details as I have footage of the moment available via Twitter for any who wish to hear it. Next up was G-Mo Skee and the INF Gang, and his performance was one for the ages! Everything from moshers, to a juggalo’s wheel chair, not the juggalo himself but just the wheel chair, surfing the crowd, to G-Mo surfing the crowd was one of the hypest moments of the show. Next up was Blaze Ya Dead Homie, who never fails to astonish!  I found myself emotional quite a few times during the show as the crowd screamed family, and when Blaze spit some classics that I grew up on. Shit that helped me get through a lot of bad times as a teenager and holds a close place in my heart such as “Juggalo Anthem,” “Shotgun,” “Nasty” and even the new track “Ghost” off his newest album The Casket Factory. I’ve never to date heard a Blaze Ya Dead Homie song I didn’t love and to hear them and see them performed live was a completely awesome experience. While I was periscoping and getting footage of Blaze’s performances, I unfortunately missed the opportunity to meet up with G-Mo Skee and The R.O.C. while they were at the merch booth. Luckily my homie Zach, who is now known as Twiztid Joker, the official leader of my street team, was able to get some pictures with them both and represent Masters of the Underground while I was lost in Blaze’s performance.

When Twiztid finally hit the stage, the entire building erupted! It was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced in my entire life. Love and respect from the entire juggalo crowd caused the floor and walls to vibrate! When Jamie Madrox and Monoxide hit the stage, it is a site to behold. I again grew emotional and hyped up as the played classics like “Rock the Dead” and “We Don’t Die”, which had the entire crowd literally jumping in the air myself included. They played “Buckets of Blood” which Twiztid Joker later told me he had yet to hear live, “LDLHAIBCSYWA”, and even “Kill Somebody” off their newest release The Continuous Evilution of Life’s ?s; which by the way is one hell of a kick ass song to see live! To sum it up, Twiztid and the entire MNE crew absolutely killed it. There was no hate or infighting and some quite hilarious banter that led to Madrox hurting himself by pinching his nipple. They threw water on the crowd, which personally I don’t think was needed, I’m sure the lettes were wet enough as is.  Okay that was bad I’ll admit it but hey I’m your friendly neighborhood psychopath I say crazy and sometimes stupid shit most of the time!

In conclusion, I had the time of my life and Masters of the Underground has only continued to grow since the show both in listeners, team members and supporters. I noticed that Boondox, Blaze, and Lex the Hex Master will be coming back to Reading on April 14th for The Murder Tour and I will absolutely be there no matter what! Next time with VIP tickets and a better camera for pictures. One thing for certain is that we grind hard and have a true passion for this business.

Thank you to everyone who supports us from the juggalos worldwide, to MNE for their kick ass performance and especially to Scottie D, Rosco, Nikki Wickked and the entire FaygoLuvers staff for sponsoring us and truly believing in what we are trying to do as a station and for standing behind me.  This has started out as the single best year of my life, and it’s only the beginning! I can’t wait to see what else is in store. Many big projects on the way so be sure to stay tuned. Mad, mad love to every single juggalo out there who supports, and hell even to those who don’t ha-ha. You all are the reason I continue to do this. I’m writing this at around 1:18 am Sunday morning, so I also would like to wish everyone a happy Juggalo Day Weekend, safe travels home and I hope to meet you all soon in the flesh!

Sincerely Yours, Your Friendly Neighborhood Psychopath, The Illusionizt
